Holy hell, they're making a movie based on Bill Willingham's acclaimed Fables comic. Please be good. Please be good. Please be good. Please be good. Please be good. Please be good. Please be good. Please be good.

With the rampant success of all things fairytale these days (Once Upon A Time, Grimm, Snow White and the Huntsman) and the promise of many more fairy tale movies to come (Cinderella, Maleficent) it's about DAMN time someone made a Fables movie. The fairest of all the Fairy Tale translations. And that time might be now.


The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that A Royal Affair director Nikolaj Arcel (who also penned The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo screenplay) has been tapped to adapt Willingham's Vertigo comic. Which means... it might actually be good. Jeremy Slater, of the Fantastic Four reboot, is penning the project and oh-my-god-all-the-blood-just-rushed-to-my-head-and-I'm-going-to-pass-out.

This HAS to be good, it MUST be good. We are so wedded to the amazing batch of modernized, kick ass fairy tale characters in this comic, we may jump off a bridge if it's bad. Or something like that. For now, we remain cautiously optimistic and will go home and watch A Royal Affair on Netflix, again.

I appreciate the enthusiasm but not everyone has heard of the comic. Maybe toss in, I dunno, two sentances saying WHAT the Fables comic was about?!?!
